The French Language School offers groups classes at various levels during the week.

We can also arrange...

  • Customised intensive courses for individuals and groups, in particular those who need to acquire French language skills for working overseas
  • French curriculum mathematics
  • Private lessons


Students are assessed prior to starting a course so as to ensure that they are offered classes at the appropriate level.

The lessons are highly personalised as they are made up of very small groups of 2 - 5 students.


The French Language School uses the latest teaching methodology in France: ECHO (for adults). The objectives and methods used in ECHO are complient with CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for languages). It is also suitable preparation for the DELF (Diploma in French Studies).

Materials are at an additional cost depending on your proficiency level.
